Codeless Customizations: Custom Post Types & Custom Fields
Difficulty Level: Beginner (aka EZ PZ) WP Omaha - Admin One of the most powerful tools in WordPress is the ability to add Custom Post Types and Custom Fields. What does that even mean? Basically, "Posts" and "Pages" are not the only type of Thing" you can "Add New" of in WP. Different organizations have reason to manage a list of other stuff (Projects, Products, People, Events, etc.) With Custom Post Types, we can manage a list of ANYTHING! This is usually done in code, either by coding a custom plugin, or in your theme's functions.php file. However in WP Omaha - Admin, we frown upon coding. "Ain't Nobody Got Time For That!" So, we will explore a handful of plugins that help us manage this functionality. This way, we don't have to program anything, hire a developer, or even look at code at all. Join us to learn how to bend WordPress to fit your organization's model, without having to bend your mind.

What we're about

WPOmaha.org (http://www.WPOmaha.org) - official website

WP Omaha is a volunteer-led organization focused on growing and educating the WordPress community in Omaha, Nebraska and its surrounding communities. Our members include a broad range of WordPress users: new and experienced developers, site owners, site administrators, designers, and more.

The diversity of our members inspired us to hold multiple WordPress Meetups each month, making it easy for anyone interested in advancing their WordPress skills to find a relevant topic and session. No matter your level of experience and expertise, there’s a WP Omaha Meetup for you:

WP Admin - This Meetup is for general WordPress users with little to no technical web knowledge. If you are a blogger, small business owner, or beginner web designer, this is the Meetup for you. WP Admin Meetups are generally held the fourth Thursday of every month from 6-8pm at Agape Red. When the fourth Thursday falls on or near a holiday, as it does in November and December, we will meet on the third Thursday.

WP Dev - This Meetup is for developers. We get into programming/coding themes, plugins, and any other custom WordPress functionality. At these Meetups we learn to push the boundaries of WordPress. WP Dev Meetups are generally held the second Thursday of every month from 6-8pm at Brain Exchange.

WP Open Help Desk - This Meetup is for people that either need help or would like to help others with current WordPress projects or small problems/issues. There is strength in numbers. Bring your laptop & get connected with the community. WP Open Help Desk Meetups will be announced as they are scheduled.

Please be sure to RSVP via Meetup.com. If you decide last minute that you can not attend the Meetup even though you confirmed an RSVP, please adjust your RSVP as sometimes we base food purchases on the number of people attending.
